Water hydrates your crops and livestock throughout the year. It also ensures those commodities reach their  final destination. U.S. ports exported 142 million metric tons of agricultural goods in 2015, based on the most recent data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service.
